I remember Bruce, but I have not heard of "Lantern City." Also not familiar with the term "steampunk." What does it mean? And, what's the series all about?

Steampunk is a subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of "the path not taken" of such technology as dirigibles or analog computers; these frequently are presented in an idealized light, or with a presumption of functionality. Although many works now considered seminal to the genre were published in the 1960s and 1970s, the term steampunk originated in the late 1980s as a tongue in cheek variant of cyberpunk

I really thought since I signed up I would have received more information by now. Still waiting though.

I was trying to think of a steampunk TV show and Warehouse 13 has all those turn of the century gizmos and The Adventure of Brisco County Jr had a steampunk feel. Movies like Treasure Planet and and this

are definitely steampunk. So who is into cyberpunk by the way.

Have you seen "Fantastic Planet?" What catagory would you place this awesome movie? I thought I was confused with "steampunk," now I'm trying to process it and "cyberpunk." LOL, help, Popeye.
